With her beloved younger siblings settled and happy, Erin Foley has empty nest syndrome. At age thirty-five.

So she's hitting the pause button on her life and holing up in a secluded (but totally upgraded—she's not into roughing it) cabin near Virgin River. Erin is planning on getting to know herself…not the shaggy-haired mountain man she meets.

In fact, beneath his faded fa

Awesome...wonderful...romantic...suspenseful...emotional...sigh-worthy...hmmm, where's my thesarus? There are not enough words to adequately convey my feelings for this book or series in general. The only problem I have is how do you choose? How do you choose your favorites in the Virgin River series? I thought no one could top the original alpha with a heart of gold (Jack Sheridan from Virgin River), but man oh man, those Riordan guys are coming awfully close! First Luke, then Sean, and now Aid ...more

There are two places you're guaranteed to hear about vaginal dryness. In a medical textbook, and in a Robyn Carr `romance'.

I've had enough of Virgin River.

The region has a disproportionate percentage of residents who make a living from working between women's legs.

We got another lesson in the details of menopause - but this time it happened when Jack had a conversation about it. And there's no better way to kill the romance of a romantic hero than write him into a conversation about vaginal d
Dear Ms. Carr,

I love this series, especially because all 10 books are on audio and narrated by Therese Plummer (aka Savannah Richards) who is, bar none, the best in the business. She breathes life into the characters that inhabit Virgin River; and,if the two of you remain a team, the series will rock for as long as you want it to.

As enjoyable as the series is, however, there is one major flaw that I'm hoping you can correct at some point soon. While it is true that you've created THE hero extra

I love the Virgin River series! Aiden and Erin's romance was a treat, so very hot and sweet at the same time! I loved how Aiden took his time with Erin! Oh boy! I didn't want their story to end, I felt like I needed just a little more, at the end, but as with all the other couples I'm sure I'll get updates in the coming books, so I won't complain.

Annalee was a complete nutcase! Thankfully, she wasn't as divisive as I thought she would be. Still, she caused a lot of very serious trouble! I hope s

Well, this one was didactic. Almost lost a star for the lectures on special needs adults, surrogate parenting and life after hysterectomy. One of Carr's strengths is her dialogue, but people just don't go into these long-winded explanations. And I'm not sure that, as a reader, I needed to know all those details ... at least not more than once.

In any case, I liked the lead couple. I loved, loved, loved, that my favorite Virgin River couple -- Ian and Marcie -- were back in the picture. Although M
I absolutely LOVED this book. As usual Carr did an impressive job pairing the hero and heroine together. While I had reservations about Erin and Aiden as a couple before I read the book, due to my perception on Erin’s personality. It soon became obvious I should not have worried. Although Erin is indeed uptight and a bit controlling at first, we are able to see other facets to her personality and it soon becomes apparent it’s just a façade. In the end she turned out to be one of those rare heroi ...more
5 stars – Contemporary Romance

This is another sweet, dramatic, moving, emotional, and romantic addition to Carr’s superb Virgin River saga, which remains one of my top favorite series.

Aiden Riordan is such a husband worthy hero, and although his relationship with Erin Foley developed rather quickly, the connection between them felt genuine and their moments together were innocently tender, touching, and passionate. The way Aiden was so determined to please Erin...Ahhh and Yowza!

Opening Line: "In the two weeks Aiden Riordan had been in Virgin River, he's hiked over a hundred miles and grown himself a pretty hefty dark red beard."

Erin Foley’s character was first introduced to the Virgin River series way back in book #4 A Virgin River Christmas now she’s back and a whole lot nicer for book #10 (if you‘re counting)

Just a continuation of the Virgin River Epic.

I may stop reading these soon - I don't find I'm getting anything new out of them. That isn't to say that I didn't like Aiden and Erin, because I did, but I am starting to get tired of Mel. And Mel is always around. Jack and Mel are a pivotal point of this series, although they may not be heavily featured they are always important to some sub-plot and frankly I am done with reading their story.

MOONLIGHT ROAD is book 10 in the Virgin River series. I started this series years ago and I'm on a mission to finish it up this year.

It sure was nice to visit my old friends in Virgin River. MOONLIGHT ROAD is about another Riordan brother and I think this one is my favorite. Aiden comes to Virgin River for some rest and relaxation. He is a doctor but when he runs into Erin Foley he looks more like something off of Duck Dynasty. She actually thinks he is a vagrant and he

Love this book. The ending brought tears to my eyes.

These books are the perfect "getting into the holiday spirit" type of read. They have a quaint, almost Hallmark-movie type feel to them that leaves me feeling uplifted. That said, I don't think I'd have the patience to read them, as they're not as couple centered as I prefer in my romances. However, I've loved listening to them as I go about my day.

Not my favorite book of the series. It didn't quite engage me all the way, but it was still a good book. Carr would have to do something really bizarre for me to hate a Virgin River book.

Series Note:
Personally, I would highly recommend reading this series in order.

Aiden Riordan recently left the Navy and is taking some time off in Virgin River with his family before he looks for a new OB/GYN position. Erin Foley, a tax & real estate lawyer, is on a much overdue vacation in Virgin River a
I dunno. Is it me, or has the writing in this series gone downhill? While the Virgin River books still have that 'comfort read' feeling about them, I'm finding more and more issues as I progress through the series.

For starters, these books are now featuring some of the most unnatural dialogue I've ever has the displeasure of reading. People just don't speak like this. It's like the author is using the character's dialogue for info dumps - and what's worse, either the reader already knows the inf

Yay! I loved this book. Aiden is one of my most favorite characters. He is right up there with Jack and Me. And yes we get Jack and Mel more in this book woohoo.

Ok so we meet Aiden a few books back he is Luke’s OBGYN brother. We also meet Erin a few books back she is Marcie older sister. Erin is having a hard time with both her brother and sister moving on with their lives. She pretty much has been raising them since she was just a young girl herself after her mother and f

Yarg. Mel irritates me. You can be reading a perfectly good Virgin River novel and then enters Mel, and she takes over. Then you start to wonder who the book really is about and what happened to the main characters. I don't know why the author feels the need to resurrect Mel throughout this series and give her new obstacles to overcome. Maybe because she was the main character in the first novel. Not sure. Or maybe there are a lot of Mel fans out there. Not me. Anyway, because of Mel's repeated ...more

While I wasn't as enthralled in this particular story as I have been in some of the other books in this series, I still enjoyed it. Most of it takes place in Virgin River, CA, and involves a heroine that was first introduced in #4 in the series, "A Virgin River Christmas" with Ian Buchanan and Marcie Sullivan.

As with any series, it's better to have read the series in order and since "Moonlight Road" updated a few other past characters--especially this one!

Awful. It's a romance novel, so a certain level of awful is expected, however, this goes above and beyond. Part of it is your typical romance fodder. Erin is a 30-something, smoking hot, red-haired, highly successful lawyer who never had time for love. Aiden is a 30-something, smoking hot, raven haired, highly successful doctor (OB/GYN) whose past relationship soured him on love. They meet, there's drama, hot sex, more drama, they live happily ever after. At the same time, this book is part of a ...more

Moonlight Road was another fabulous installment in Robyn Carr's Virgin River series. This one focuses primarily on the rather large and still growing Riordan clan. We also get to see a fair bit of Ian and Marcie (A Virgin River Christmas) for the first time since their book. Many other current and former Virgin River residents pop in for a visit although some are merely in the background. This time the story was a little less about the town, and a little more about both A

Love how this author continues to realistically tackle serious issues while delivering yet another fantastic romance!

I love this series it is so heartwarming and uplifting. This is like the warm, fuzzy blankets of book series. The stories envelope you and you wish Virgin River was a real place. This is the 11th book in the series and, as with many other series, there are reader favorites.

Can't get enough of Aiden Riordan *sigh* and I feel silly to keep saying the next book of the series to be the best of them. Seriously, it keeps getting better and better.
Audiobook: Narrator - Therese Plummer

I’ve written it at least 10 times now. This narrator does an amazing job of bringing every single one of these characters to life. I absolutely love listening to her and I think she may have pulled some voodoo on me because I swear I hear her voice even when I quietly reading.

While I loved watching Aiden fall in love, I wasn’t a huge fan of Erin. She was just too harsh, judgey and high and mighty. At least that was my initial judgement of her from meeting her

This book is just a tad different than the rest of the Virgin River series as it took me just a little bit longer to like Erin as a character. She came across so snooty and judgmental and to be honest I'm not completely convinced that she isn't judgmental. But, I eventually did like her. Love her? Probably not but she has a ton of redeeming qualities. No one's perfect, right?

When Erin first met Aiden she was convinced he was an out of work bum who was just wasting any ta

Listen, the love story between Aiden and Erin was good, it was cute! I liked a lot of it, it was well done, as was the character development between Aiden and Erin. I was even willing to looking forward the ignorant remarks made about lawyers being "the opposite of nurturing" and the comments about a Estates/tax lawyer not being able to be cute. I rolled my eyes, was annoyed enough to share with my friends (one who is interested in becoming an estates/tax lawyer and

Oh boy, Moonlight Road was a doozy ! It’s one of my least favorite of the series so far. That’s ironic because Aiden Riordan is my favorite Riordan brother so far. He’s the level-headed brother who is looking for a relationship. I really enjoyed Erin as a heroine too because there is more than meets the eye to her. She’s sacrificed a lot for her family. The romance was sweet, but it was rushed, and then the last 40% or so was a trip to crazy town when Aiden’s ex-wife shows up to spoil the party. ...more

Great beginning with a fun meet cute. I giggled a number of times throughout the first chapter.

Although I've enjoyed most of the Virgin River Series, Moonlight Road is a favorite entry in the series since I think book #3. Along with the primary romance between Aiden and Erin, there are updates on both of their families whom many have had their stories told in previous books. I really enjoyed the main story arc and the suspense and intrigue of Aiden's past and how it's now affecting his

Dr. Aiden Riordan's at loose ends since he's left the navy and his entire plan is to hike around Virgin River, Grace Valley and points in between. Aiden's daily hikes take him near tightly wound workaholic Erin Foley's renovated cabin. Aiden's sudden appearance with a machete, he's using to help him traverse the thick woods, causes Erin to have an accident.

Wow! Wow! Carr ceases to amaze me. Moonlight Road was a wonderful story that had romance, family values, marital issues, a small thriller part and the birth of lives. Do I need to say more? The story between Aiden and Erin was very refreshing and like all of Carr's characters kept me intrigued.

Carr has the only series (that I know of) that keeps going back to the first romance that started Virgin River. Mel and Jack have a disagreement in regards to adding to their growing family. Mel faces the
